went for mitt romney. >> brian: when van jones said romney won you had a good night if you are rom romm. this sound bite is the strongest. we heard big oil accident tax breaks and busting the economy. not only did mitt romney attack this and address this, he grouped in and compared those alleged tax breaks with green energy investments with our money, listen. >> don't forget. you put 90 billion dollars worth of breaks in solar and wind to solyndra, and fis car and tesla and i friend of mine said you don't just pick winners and losers, you pick the losers, this is not the kind of policy to get america energy sescure. second topic you said you get a deduction for taking a plant over sea. i have been in business 25 years and i have no idea what you are talking about. maybe i need a new accountant but the idea for getting a break for shipping jobs over seas is not the case. we do have to bringg money from over seas back to. >> gretchen: that line happened to her. i got to hear that was to me, that is the mitt romney that a lot of people didn't think existed and wanting to see more of which
morning. well, look, as you just played out in those sound bites, it was a big night for governor romney. some have suggested it was a make or break debate for him. he certainly showed up to fight. and voters agree he got the win in a cnn or flash poll, 67% of the voters said he won the debate. 25% saying president obama won. how did he do it? he challenged the president, never backed down even as the president appeared not to want to push back until the second half of the debate. take a listen. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office, facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years for fighting for obamacare instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> for 18 months, he has been running on this tax plan. and now, five weeks before the election, he is saying his big, bold idea is never mind. >> reporter: now, carol, remember, there are two more preside presidential debates. next week we also have the vice presidential debate. it will
the night when he pointed out, you know, the governor romney's ideas apparently are too good to communicate to the american people. he wants to keep them a secret. doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this tax cut. he doesn't want to tell us how he will pay for this defense spending. doesn't want to tell us how he will reduce the deficit. >> he did. >> he wouldn't provide any specifics that is still the problem. people are still waiting. he may have won on performance but he definitely lost on substance. >> i don't think we were watching the same debate. mitt romney said he would the no raise taxes to pay for his tax cuts. he said he was going to cut spending. even said that there would be a grade. he will not borrow money to pay for a program. he said he would cut pbs and big bird. he was very specific about what he would do. in certain places though romney questioned obama and obama just looked at him, when obama said basically you get a tax cut or a tax deduction for moving jobs overseas. mitt romney said i've been in business last 25 years, i don't know what you're talking about.
of this campaign. for your him it had to begin wednesday night in denver. romney had just a rough three weeks. he's had a rough three months. you could argue that romney hasn't, quote, won a month in this campaign since may or june. a trailing campaign has just a handful of opportunities to fundamentally change the trajectory of a race. it's losing. barring an october surprise, the three debates that kick off wednesday night are romney's last chance. the president rallied supporters sunday night kicking off his eighth trip to nevada this year before 00 kwering down for two full days for debate prep at a lakeside resort in suburban las vegas. >> you may have heard that in a few days my opponent in this election and i are going to have a debate. i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. >> you are. >> i don't know about that. >> both campaigns from the candidates on down have been frantically spinning to lower expectations for wednesday night. >> governor romney, he's a good debater. i'm just okay. >> president obama is a very experienced speaker, ex
over last night. >> obama: i want to thank governor romney because i think it was a terrific debate. and i very much appreciate it. >> eliot: minutes later liberal commentators began screaming about the attack lines the president could have used but ignored. why no mention of romney's damming comments that 47% of americans were freeloaders dependent on government handouts. obama campaign adviser david plough had an answer. it wasn't very good. >> 47%, that's an issue that 100% of the country knows about. the president wanted to tell the american people here's my job plan. focused on energy and education on the right way to fix the deficit. romney's approach is the wrong approach on taxes on deficit on wall street reform, on medicare and healthcare. >> eliot: on "good morning america," comedian jon stewart said he tried the same strategy in an upcoming debate with bile o'reilly. >> strategy that obama took, it is the rope-a-dope but instead of letting your opponent punch himself out you just get beat up. >>
. a... lot of... 'kitchee tablee topics... in.. last night's debate.../both... pressdent ooama's... and... governor romney's... tax plans... were... talked about... in depth. depth. pauu gessler talked to economists today to break down what it means for you.paul-- the major difference right off the battis the ush- era tax cuts on households makkng more than 250 thousand dollars.mitt permanent.baaack obama would llt ttem expire. rooneyycalls for an across- the- board cut in marginnl tax rate to 25 percent...and eliminating the estate tax, as wwll as other taxes on capittl gains of 200 thousand dollars or less. what he calls the 'buffee a minimum 30 percent tax rates. university of balttmooe professor teven isberg says he wanted to hearrmore on how specifically governno romnnyy would raise neeeed revenues. steven isberg, university of baltimore: 9.47 "at the enn of the day, ttere's not a whole lot of differencessbetween one and another."steven isberg, university of baltimore: 10.22 "i'd really like to see the calculation as to how both of those gentlemen are getting to th
the huffington post this morning. here it is, "romney wins the night." this is from "the hill" newspaper. in "the hill" again -- that is from "the hill." here is "politico." that is from "politico." time to hear from you. the first presidential debate is over. we're going to begin with old c- span watcher joe in the georgia. caller: i thought it was a tremendous win for mitt romney. can you hear me ok? host: we are listening. caller: i think this is a game changer. i think he will be elected and he will be the greatest president in the history of the country. i could not even sleep last night. i thought it was a total home run. i am so fired up. everybody at the barbecue was so excited. i do not have the words to say -- i will turn it on like anything you have ever seen for the next five weeks. he will be the best president in history. host:next is ann, a president obama supporter. caller: good morning. i think exactly the opposite. i think mitt romney looked almost manic and his appearance. i have never seen him flailing his arms around. he told so many lies. he completely turned around all of t
to president obama last night? here's mitt romney taking it to the president. listen to this. >> the reason i'm in this race is there are people that are really hurting today in this country and we face this deficit could crush the future generations, what's happening in the middle east, there are developments around the world that are of real concern. and republicans and democrats both love america, but we need to have leadership. leadership in washington that will actually bring people together and get the job done and could not care less if it's a republican or a democrat, i've done it before. i'll do it again. connell: that was mitt romney. our first guest on the program today is congressman charlie rangel, democrat from new york. great to see you. everybody is asking this question in all seriousness, what happened to the president last night? >> i walked on the street this morning, people think i talk with the president on a regular basis, hey congressman, what happened? hey charlie, what happened last night? connell: we have another question congressman, what happened to your microphone
night that someone recorded a young lady that actually said, we're working for romney and do you want to register as a republican? >> so, what we've asked mr mr. sproul to do, we want him to appear in washington on october 12th. we to want see all the documents that the rnc have signed and the contract he has with the rnc with regard to all these states. now, we believe that he has been operating in at least ten states, reverend. and this is some -- these are very, very serious allegations that carry some very serious criminal penalties. we want him to know that we want to get to the bottom of this. we're going to bring him to justice because nobody has the right, nobody has the right, to deny folk the right to vote. >> well, i'm sure that many of your colleagues that are republicans that were screaming when allegations were made against a.c.o.r.n. will be waiting to join you very vocally and vociferously on october 12th. >> we have to be calling on them to sit in the room and grill mr. sproul along with us. >> congressman cumming, thank you for your time this evening. >> thank you. >
% or partisans. democracy first, a democratic polling firm. romney has a good night, but no evidence of changing the game. i agree with them completely on the first that romney had a good night. i think we will have to see a minute whether it changed the game. walmart sponsored their walmart focus groups with momentum analysis, a democratic polling firm, one of glen's partners together. they suggested a monster lot of walmart moms, it was a win for romney. the people in the groups were divided between a win for romney or a tie. on the other hand, it said they were disappointed with the president's performance. they do not think he made the case for how another four years would be better. they made the point that neither one of these guys really connected with voters on a personal level, but i think romney did a superior job of debating it. we will be seeing a lot of reviews over the next few days. i think the key thing for us to watch, no question mitt romney won the debate. how much does this change things? in national polls he will get a few points out of this. the more relevant. is that, numb
at st. pete in st. petersburg, florida. last night a very confident mitt romney and paul ryan whipped up their base in rural virginia and as much as the romney campaign is determined not to cloak their actual fireworks it wasn't exactly subtle. >> last night was an important night for the country because people got to -- got the chance to cut through all the attacks and counterattacks and all of the theatrics associated with a campaign and instead were able to listen to substance. >> romney also picked up the official endorsement of the nra. we didn't know they weren't supporting him. whose supporters were of course a major presence at that very raucous rally. see all the orange there? the campaign is trying to capitalize on momentum with new ads releasing four over the last 24 hours including a new ad in ohio promising a million new manufacturing jobs and a testimonial from a former unlv star greg anthony a college basketball analyst for cbs sports. >> i voted for barack obama. i thought he would be a centrist. i really lost faith in him. i'm supporting mitt romney. he is a no excuse ki
tied. but a lot of people say it's romney's night to shine. this is the contra costa county republican party campaign office. people up there are sitting on the edge of their seats, waiting to hear from the man, mitt romney, they say will be the next president of the united states. it's the first head-to-head debate between president obama and his republican challenger mitt romney. many people agree there are major differences between the two, who will battle it out for about 90 minutes on domestic issues, which is exactly what some people we spoke with say they want to hear. >> they're professionals. they're good at it. the information they have on hand and who do they speak to. you're singing to the choir on one hand, then going for the independents on the other. >> there's some specific plans i want to hear that people have, exactly how they plan to implement their change. >> but it still doesn't matter because you made up your mind, though? >> that's right. >> reporter: here at the republican headquarters, volunteers are preparing for a weekend of campaigning. >> this is a crucial
, huntington bank, u.s. bancorp or key. take a romney kicker any day of the week. throughout the night romney repeatedly claimed he was the real friend of small business. even as we know saying something bad about small business has become the new third rail of american politics. this comment is typical. >> there was a survey done of small businesses across the country. said what's been the effect of obama care on your hiring plans? and three quarters of them said it makes us less likely to hire people. >> all right. let's take him at face value for a moment. small business truly gets a boost if you elect romney, you need some paychex. the company's growth is in the hands of small business expansion. obama bears take note. you might be tempted to short paychex on the democratic victory. but remember, you have to pay that bountiful dividend if you short the stock. along the same lines, romney claimed that obama's policies are causing an increase in the use of food stamps. >> the proof of that is one out of six people in poverty. the proof of that is we've gone from 32 million on food stamps to
. >> reporter: the democratic position was that mitt romney's performance last night, in their words, is at odds with what he's saying on the campaign trail and privately, they're acknowledging what many have been saying, that governor romney had a good debate and the president is going to be under pressure to do better next time. the president tried to refrain the debate saying the mitt romney he saw last night had little resemblance to what the president said romney's policies are. governor romney himself, meanwhile s meeting with supporters in colorado. romney said the debate gave him a chance to frame the campaign for the country for what their choice would be. >> last night, i thought it was a great opportunity for the american people to see two different visions for the country. it was helpful to describe the vigs. i saw the president's vision as trickledown government. >> governor romney may dance around his position but, if you want to be president, you owe the american people the truth so he's the truth: governor romney can not pay for his $5 trillion tax plan without blowing up the def
a liar mitt romney is and was last night. if he was talking, he was -- testifies speaking last night, he was lying. mitt romney had a good night, but, you know, even a blind squirrel gets a nut every now and then. >> brian: 09 minutes -- 90 minutes? that's like if off lucky question, that would be an apt analogy. but we don't even know any blind squirrels. >> gretchen: how will romney go on the response mode to these attacks? he did so last night on the sean hannity program. here he is reacting to the president's damage control yesterday. >> i have watched some of the attacks that have come my way. you just shake your head. i do recall that the president's acceptance speech four years ago, he said that if you don't have a record to run on, you attack your opponent. you try and disqualify your opponent and early on in this campaign, there were democrats strategists, one in particular who said their campaign strategy was to kill romney. hopefully not literally. this kind of character assassination is something which i think has gone way too far and i think is an unfortunate part of this ca
common math. mitt romney told america lies last night, and the sad thing about it is that so many poor and middle-class americans will believe them all because he looked as if he bullied a moderator. "oh, he is going to make a great president --" >> on what particular thing did he lie? >> like the president pointed out, he said a few years ago that we did not need any more teachers, ok? now last night, he said that he is not going to get rid of teachers, just like he told us about how he is going to save american money. >> donald from clarksville, virginia. this is julie. go ahead. >> i think that the president did very well last night. i think he took the high road by not getting into arguments about what romney was doing. as far as he was going to keep teachers -- i'm still amazed that he looked jim lehrer right in the face and said "i am going to cut pbs." i think the president just stood back and let it romney talk. i am not a middle-aged woman. i have been on disability now for a -- i am a middle-aged woman. i've been on disability now for about eight years to hear -- for about ei
showed the people won the -- mitt romney won the debate last night. -- on our facebook page, a majority of people said that mitt romney won the debate last night. who did you think one? caller: i think it was mitt romney. >> let's go to our next call from oregon. caller: i was really impressed with that debate last night. we need a good businessman. i think we need some new energy and new ideas. spending is out of control. we need a party that can get it under control and i think it is a romney and ryan. 6 politics aside. we have too much government in our lives. >> we need to put politics aside. we have too much government in our lives. >> we have taken the debates and broken into topic areas. joe biden is out campaigning in iowa. he talked about what he thought the president did last night. >> i thought the president did well. you never know what game that governor romney will come out with. the centerpiece of the economic policies so far has been tax cuts. last night we found out that he does not -- i guess the outdoors that to china -- outsourced that to china. i don't know. i think
, not sesame street. romney gave president obama lot of openings the other night. he industried tried to sprint fd right to the middle but ending up tripping autopsy over the truth. >> now, my opponent, he was doing a little tap dance at the debate the other night. trying to wiggle out of stuff that he's been saying for a year. doing like a -- it was like dancing with the stars. >> the president's right. romney tried to dance away from his own record in the debate. he danced around on taxes, he danced around on medicaid. he even danced around on his own health insurance plan. >> the other night he said he'd repeal obama care as soon as he took office and then he backtracked and said, no, wait. at least i'll make sure to cover folks with pre-existing conditions. and then i've explained, well, actually, your plan doesn't do that. and then his campaign had to come out and say, actually, that's not true. our plan wouldn't do that. so governor romney was fact checked by his own campaign. that's right. that's right. >> romney got fact checked by his own campaign. it's pretty clear now that romney has
. obama is now in a position to nail jello to the wall. you said that romney was lying on wednesday night. now, that's possible or it's possible he's now telling the truth and the others were lies. you can't have a tax cut of that size and not add to the deficit because there are not enough loopholes to close to get you to that point. >> dana, isn't that the problem? he comes out of this debate having three at trically won a score in terms of the night but now he's got the problem of having to defend an economic plan that is really problematic for him, particularly given his record and particularly given the republican base. going forward, doesn't he have the burden to defend what he did the other night? >> he does. i assume what is going on here is romney said, look, with the hard right thing, we are down in the key states. we're down overall. this isn't working. well, let's bring back that etch-a-sketch campaign. will americans believe suddenly this man that's been saying one thing for the last year or two is now believed something entirely different? he's simply walked away from the wh
. >>> last night in an interview fr governor romney backtracked for the first time in the controversial remarks regarding the 47%. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions you say something that doesn't come out write. this says something completely wrong. i believe my life shows care about 100%. >> joinidavid, does governor ro deserve credit? he says now he was completely wrong about that statement caught on tape. >> you know, tamron, there's some things i can say to my wife that i might regret and i'll apologize and she'll accept my apolo apology. i can imagine other things she might say she's sorry and won't forgive me. in this case mitt romney said something offensive to half the country that's hard for him to take back. people felt like they got an insight into his soul. it was a private moment with people like himself. it went directly to his values. it said, i believe these people. 47% of the country don't pay income tax believe they're entitled. they are always dependent on government. that's hard to take back. he can s
. >>> on wednesday night, mitt romney's going to be standing on the same stage with the president of the united states and i am telling you, david, come thursday morning, the entire narrative of this race is going to change. >> is it going to be a game change? bracing from declining polls and series of missteps that have sparked criticism from prominent republicans mitt romney takes the stage with president obama and it could be a pivotal moment for his campaign. joining me now, virginia governor and romney supporter bob mcdonnell. thank you for being with us. how important is this debate and do you think we'll be waking up on thursday morning as chris christie said with a completely different campaign? >> i think all the debates are important but particularly this one because it's on domestic policy which is the critical issue in the race and the first times that americans will get to see mitt romney and barack obama side by side. not only hear their words and assess their styles and their candor, but also get to hear the ideas. i think that's what this whole race comes down to, is the record.
. we've had some guests who feel it has a lot to do with mitt romney's strong debate showing last night. eamon javers is in washington with the latest reaction to last night's action. eamon. >> hi, bill. the reviews are in for last night's presidential debate. not so good for barack obama. definitely good for mitt romney. a lot of folks concluding that romney had one of the stronger debate performances last night in presidential debating history, at least in recent memory. that's not good news for the president. you can tell how both these campaigns feel about their performance last night based on what they're doing today. we have not seen mitt romney out in front of television cameras so far today, but president obama hosted a rally in colorado today, giving him a chance to have almost a do over from last night's performance. take a listen. >> when i got on to the stage, i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but it couldn't have been mitt romney because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts

he was going to continue to carry. but now this. in a tv interview last night, romney did a complete about-face, saying the statement was completely wrong. >> clearly in a campaign with hundreds, if not thousands of speeches and question and answer sessions, now and then you'll say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that is completely wrong. and i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%. and that's been demonstrated throughout my life. and this whole campaign is about the 100%. when i become president it will be about helping the 100%. >> pretty interesting, though. after he said it he said it was inelegant but it's what he meant and now he's saying it's completely wrong. you can really see an evolution there as the general election gets closer and maybe he tries to move a little bit to the middle. >> i wonder -- now he'll be accused of flip-flopping again. that will be the argument they'll continue to use. the reason he came out and strongly stated that's not what he meant is so that president obama can't use it ag
reaction to last night and what it means? >> first of all, as a yankees fan, a nats fan, and a romney fan, it was a pretty good night. thank you for having fred and i. these are always fun to do. i am a huge fan of your jet engines, utc, particularly when they work. i am still here, so that is a great sign. the tw factors from last night, how much did mitt romney raise his image? we have seen a number of polls showing 2 to 3 points. mitt romney came across as somebody who was more genuine that they it -- than they had realized. this guy could step into the oval office and have no problems doing it. i am not sure that any other republican running in the primaries would have been able to pull that off last night. and i am being generous. [laughter] what i wonder is, we do our dialing between 5:00 and 9:00 p.m. on the west coast, how do you do a national poll tax everybody is going to bed -- on the east coast, how do you do a national poll? everybody is going to bed. among undecideds -- look, the first decision they make is, do i want to vote for barack obama? he is the incumbent, the guy in
't relate to people like me thing again. here's the romney campaign last night. >> both mitt and i have summer places up in new hampshire on lake winnipesaukee. a few summers ago was taking my chin and grandchildren to the town in the boat for ice cream. i got to the doing, looked around, there was no place to dock, we pulled over and all jumped out and ran up the dock and i realized there was nobody left in the boat to help me tie up or anything, they left me at to sea. i pulled up and i said who is going to tie up the boat? i looked up and there is mitt romney. he tied up the boat and rescued me. >> what america needs is more help parking our yachts. as hotel mogul bill marriott explained, toss me the line, biff. mitt romney is just the man to help america dock our yachts. seriously the romney campaign has been trying to stop stuff like this, they have been trying to turn mitt romney into a relatable guy. at romney events they have been playing that video from the rnc but then they bumped that in favor of the crazy clint eastwood thing. this video about his family, it very nice. nobod
